Really awesome place and so close to home. I took my 2 year old this past weekend and from the moment we walked in, he never stopped running, smiling and laughing. I thought it would be fun, but I didn't expect it to be as great as it was. Made lots of memories. Thankful for Groupon having the good deal... More

Excellent museum for the kids, playing with the attractions is encouraged. They have everything for all ages, my little one (16 Months) had a great time with the water area and there are some areas meant just for the young age group. My 4 year old had a blast as well as my 8 year old nephew. They all enjoyed... More

My 3 year old daughter and I had a great time here. The exhibits were all engaging and enjoyable for kids of all ages. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was especially cool to me that it is inside this beautiful building with historical significance.

I took my two year old here on a Saturday morning. He had an amazing time. So much for him to do and see. It's very large and all the bathrooms were clean. He was mesmerized by ask the fun things to do. We got arrived about 845am and there was plenty of free street parking. There are plenty of... More

We visited this museum with our 4 year old and she was entertained for hours. This place is great for 6 year olds and younger. There are lots of different exhibits for kids to explore building, science, and art at their own learning level.

My kids, 7 and 2 truly enjoyed the experience, it was like a city for kids where they can touch anything and everything. Underground floor has a maze of greenery as you slowly subdue into the world of Alice in Wonderland. Bunch of cars, trains, a hospital, a farm, a railroad station, a fire house all made for kids to... More

I took my 6-year old daughter and she enjoyed it (not as much as last year so I wouldn't take a child any older than that there). She spent well over an hour playing at a water table complete with foam ships and dams. They have mini versions of Philly buses and Rita's water ice for kids to role play... More

Took my 5 , 9, and 12 children along with my cousin and her 5, 4, and 3 year old! There was something to do for all ages we didn't get to finish the whole museum because they got tired how much it was to do! Did a really sweet project of planting flowers. That we took home
